I Missed This Morning's Sunrise, So This One Will Have To Do

I had plans of getting up at 3:30am this morning and driving to a location I scouted here on the island for a sunrise shoot.  Unfortunately, due to various factors I didn't get home until 11pm last night and just didn't have the energy to move when the alarm went off.  I did get up at 5:30, just as the sun was coming over the ocean and it was epic; I missed out on a great opportunity.  I will try again tomorrow morning, hopefully the opportunity will not have passed.  In the interim, I will post another sunrise image I made at Joshua Tree National Park a few weeks ago.  I call it:


I got up early my last day at Joshua Tree and wanted to get a photos of the Cocina Cactus area.  I arrived early and walked around to find the best location to capture the sunrise.  I took photos from several different places but this is my favorite because the light seems to come in and light a couple outcroppings of the cacti.  I'll include another photo from the area below.
